A Home Watch group in Catfield has been re-launched and two new groups set up in Sutton and Happisburgh to help tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the areas.
The home watch groups have been working alongside Stalham Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT),
In Catfield and Sutton they helped tackle anti-social behaviour and damage to village halls in Catfield and Sutton, after it was nominated as one of the SNT's policing priorities at a Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel (SNAP) in May.
The Happisburgh home watch group was set up by residents after a spate of break-ins to holiday homes, criminal damage and anti-social behaviour, which prompted the panel and the SNT to make coastal crime and anti-social behaviour a priority.

Local officers have carried out high visibility patrols and held street briefings in Walcott, Happisburgh and Sea Palling, and there have been no further reports of break-ins to holiday homes since the SNAP meeting in May and only six reported crimes.
At a SNAP meeting on Monday, July 13 it was agreed that anti-social behaviour and damage to village halls in Catfield and Sutton had been dealt with and was no longer a priority for the area. However coastal crime and anti-social behaviour would continue to be a neighbourhood priority for the summer months.
